ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the trial of Krill v. Cubist Pharmaceuticals wherein the plaintiff used a gestational surrogate for second child birth after completing the required legal procedures. The plaintiff's employer denied for allowing maternity leave following child's birth under the U.S. Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and offered benefit plan related to birth and adoption. A focus is on the current laws on this issue and the need of amending the FMLA for including laws related to gestational surrogacy.
